Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Pedroia was activated from the disabled list Friday, but he'll be eased back into game action. Brock Holt is at second base.
May 25 - 2:59 PM

Marcell Ozuna is back in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Ozuna was benched Wednesday after oversleeping and showing up late to the park, but he's back in there after Thursday's off day. The slumping Dexter Fowler is also in the lineup after being benched in two of the last three games.

Twins RHP prospect Blayne Enlow gave up one hit over six shutout innings on Thursday for Low-A Cedar Rapids.

Enlow did walk four, but he struck out six to help compensate. Minnesota gave the 19-year-old right-hander $2 million after taking him with the 78th pick in 2017, and it's understandable why. He's projectable, but he can get his fastball up to 95 mph already with more coming for the 19-year-old. His curveball flashes plus, and the change should be a solid third offering. He pounds the zone with all three, and he could move quickly -- relatively, anyway -- through the system because of it. Enlow is an underrated fantasy pitching prospect.

George A. King III writes that the Yankees could option Tyler Austin to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when Greg Bird (ankle) is activated from the disabled list.

Manager Aaron Boone previously had indicated that Austin had earned a role on the team, but he's been inconsistent over the last few weeks and having options could work against him here. Bird is expected to be activated on Saturday.
May 25 - 2:50 PM

Blue Jays C prospect Danny Jansen went 3-for-5 with three doubles on Thursday for Triple-A Buffalo.

Jansen also scored a run and drove in three. A 16th-round pick in 2013, Jansen has slowly but surely developed into one of the better offensive prospects at the catching position. He consistently puts the ball in play, but he's not an overly aggressive hitter, as seen in both his .312 average and .424 on-base percentage. He's just okay behind the plate, but he's at least good enough there to not have to change positions in the short-to-medium turn. The Blue Jays could give Jansen a chance to catch before the end of the 2018 campaign.
May 25 - 2:46 PM

Twins OF prospect Brent Rooker homered twice for Double-A Chattanooga on Thursday.

The homers give the 35th pick of the 2017 draft six on the season. The 23-year-old Rooker put up monster numbers at Mississippi State, but he hasn't seen the same level of success as a professional, and even with the two homers his OPS sits at .692. There's easy plus power in his right-handed bat, but the swing is long, and he's drawn just nine walks. Rooker is a risky -- but potentially rewarding -- fantasy prospect.
May 25 - 2:41 PM

Brewers RHP prospect Freddy Peralta struck out eight in five shutout innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Peralta scattered three hits, but he did have three walks. Peralta showed off his impressive stuff in two starts with the Brewers earlier in May, but he also showed that he doesn't always know where it's going. If the command can be even average, he's a starter long-term. If not, the bullpen could be an effective role for the right-hander.
May 25 - 2:29 PM

Mets SS prospect Andres Gimenez went 3-for-3 with three stolen bases on Thursday for High-A St. Lucie.

Gimenez also walked, and he scored his 25th run of the season. The highlight here is the steals, and the three taken bags gives him 15 on the year. The top prospect in the New York system, Gimenez has an above-average hit tool -- possibly even plus -- and once on base, his solid speed gives him a chance to steal plenty of bags going forward. There's not a ton of power here, but he can capitalize on mistakes, and can put the ball into the gaps. He's not going to be a Met anytime soon, but he could be an everyday player for them before the end of 2020.
